Some people kill snakes just for being near them. I think if more people knew that out of the 44 different kinds of snakes in Florida, only 6 kinds are venomous and that some of the non venomous snakes actually eat the venomous kinds, they would be hesitant to kill on sight. Below is an example of a venomous snake and an innocent snake that would likely be killed on site for looking a bit like him. I will post more examples soon.
Check out those fangs as he yawns! These are example of a Cotton Mouth snake. Notice the hooded eyes?
Beautiful, but deadly.
I KNOW it is NOT a Cotton Mouth, nor is he venomous. It is terrible to think that this little guy will get his head chopped off if he comes near humans.
